Can’t walk on Hisar’s stretches at Satrod village, Mill Gate

Hisar, October 21

Residents are inconvenienced due to the pathetic condition of streets and roads in several localities of Hisar town. The roads are so bad in certain localities of the town, including Satrod village, Mill Gate and Shiv Nagar, that people cannot walk on these.

Karambir Singh, municipal corporation member of Ward 11, which is part of Satrod village, complained that almost all streets are in poor condition in the ward area. "The situation is so bad that in case of any medical emergency, the ambulance or any vehicle cannot enter the residential area to help the patient. The roads are broken and construction material is lying scattered on the pathways". He further said Satrod village was included in the MC about 11 years ago. "We expected development of the village after inclusion in the MC, but things have not changed since then", said Singh.

He said he had been demanding the construction of streets for over a year. He said the work was supposed to be completed by March this year, but the contract for completion was extended by one year due to labour shortage after the lockdown during the Covid pandemic. The area with a population of about 30,000 suffered daily on account of poor condition of roads, he said.

Virender Singh, a businessman, residing in the Mill Gate area said, "The authorities seem to be least concerned about the plight of residents. It is daily harassment as I return home in the evening and the stretch from Shiv Dharamshala to a private school does not exist. Other roads of the area too are in pathetic condition, he said.

The residents said vehicles often got stuck in the mud-filled potholes. "We have to park our vehicles at a location away from home as it is not possible to drive the car home due to bad shape of the roads", said a resident in the Satrod locality.

The municipal corporation (MC) authorities said the work for sewerage, water supply and construction of roads and streets have been going on in certain wards, including the Ward 11 under the Amrut Scheme. "At present, the work on sewerage system is almost complete and the work for laying the water supply line is going on. The construction of roads will be taken up after the completion of sewerage and water supply line work", said an official.
